Gloucester Police/Fire: Man faces charges of dealing Oxycodone

Police arrested a Gloucester man Wednesday on charges of possessing and selling oxycodone in a parking lot on Gloucester Avenue.

According to the police report, Gloucester detectives had been investigating alleged dealing by Michael Mann, 27, of 12 Rockport Road, for several months and received information from police officers and confidential sources that Mann was selling 30 milligram tablets of oxycodone.

Wednesday, officers saw a woman drive into the parking lot off Gloucester Avenue, and soon after Mann pulled into the lot, and police believed he gave the woman drugs. Officers pulled up beside him in an unmarked cruiser after the woman drove off.

Police saw a woman in the car with Mann hand him something, and officers then asked both to step out of the car.

The officers found a pack of cigarettes with two oxycodone pills in the car, along with a bag containing three oxycodone pills. They also found tinfoil in the car, with a partially smoked oxycodone pill.

Police then arrested Mann on charges of possessing a Class B substance with the intent to distribute.

A Gloucester man was arrested on charges of domestic assault and battery, disturbing the peace, intimidating a witness, threatening to commit a crime, obstruction of justice and filing a false police report after officers responded to a report that someone was throwing things out the window of a Perkins Street home Wednesday night.

Nearby residents told police the man was on the first floor of 9 Perkins St., Wednesday at 7:50 p.m. Police could hear him yelling and screaming from the street, and found the man, Brandon Wilcox, 25, of 32 Elizabeth St., standing in a common hallway.

He told police he was throwing things to avoid hitting a woman inside the apartment with whom he was arguing.

A woman inside the apartment, however, told police that Wilcox started screaming when she walked in. She told police he’d be fine when he sobered up, and police left the apartment.
